KYBELLA® uses deoxycholic acid, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. KYBELLA® is administered through an injection into the submental area and breaks down fat over a period of a few weeks. Once destroyed, these fat cells can no longer be stored or accumulated. Multiple treatments are often required to achieve your desired levels of fat reduction.
KYBELLA® treatments don’t require any lengthy recovery period. However, they can cause submental swelling that can last up to one week. You aren’t required to limit your physical activities, but you should plan properly before any major events. Avoid direct sun exposure for several days, as this can irritate the treatment area.
A fine needle is used to inject KYBELLA® under the chin, which doesn’t leave any visible scarring or marks.
KYBELLA® is priced per vial, and multiple vials may be needed for your treatment. Additionally, most patients require two to four treatments to achieve their ideal results. Schedule a consultation to determine your specific needs. A detailed quote is provided during this process.
A topical numbing cream is applied before your injection. You may experience some minor discomfort, similar to a pinching sensation. This only lasts several seconds and is manageable for most patients.
